Campus Climate and the Role of HR

College and university presidents acknowledge that their campuses have work to do regarding campus climate and are shifting their attention to more systemic efforts. High-profile campus events and social movements are catalyzing new and renewed efforts, driving dialogue and demanding solutions on how to build and sustain inclusive campus climates. Join Dr. Lorelle Espinosa from the American Council on Education (ACE) for a look at work being done at ACE, including on campus inclusion and free speech, and get a glimpse into their work on campus climate and supporting underserved students. Espinosa will share insights on ways in which human resources can assist with changing campus climates for the better.
